IT Consulting & IT Audits

Make smarter decisions with high-level advice from seasoned technology consultants

What is IT Consulting?

IT outsourcing is the practice of contracting out the management and maintenance of your company’s technology systems to another service provider. Outsourcing your technology will free your staff to focus on other business-critical tasks instead of getting distracted by IT issues.

Keeping your business operational

These days, most businesses need IT to make money. All businesses have exterior and interior uncertainties, including severe weather, power outages, vandalism, device failure, and human error. Without a reliable secured IT infrastructure, you are at the mercy of circumstances, and when your equipment or technology services fail, then you aren’t doing business. These are the reasons why we are here to plan for these unforeseen occurrences.

What is an IT Audit?

WDIT’s audits and assessments provide an overview of your current IT infrastructure, highlight the risks that exist within your IT environment, and outline the steps needed to remedy those risks.

Should my business get an IT Audit?

Your business may need an IT audit or assessment for several reasons, such as company growth, technology upgrades, or changes in leadership.

A growing company might consider an IT audit to evaluate whether its existing infrastructure can keep up with changing business needs and increased usage. Businesses with aging infrastructure should have an IT audit to gain an understanding of the risks and limitations of their current technology and develop a timeline for equipment upgrades and replacements.

If you’re considering migrating to the cloud, an IT audit can determine which applications are right for your organization. Additionally, an IT leadership change can prompt an audit to gain an understanding of what’s really going on in your environment.

What does an IT Audit Look Like?

Typically, there are three steps:

  1. Executive Interview
  2. Technical Discovery and Analysis
  3. Audit Findings Presentation

Why does my business need an IT audit?

The biggest risk is the one you don’t know about. End-of-life servers, outdated applications, and unpatched software could leave your company’s data vulnerable to hacking, malware, and other types of cybercrime.

Uncovering risks to your business is the number one benefit of an IT audit. Assessments also provide businesses with strategic recommendations for technology upgrades and proper IT investment.
